Id say he is alot more "texeas style swing blues" then just stright blues.

Hendrix was a rock "avantgardist" blues

When he started. Thats style dident exist. The tehnology wasent even ment to perform the way he was doing it.

SRV. Litterally a decade latter ahd the thenology and the the records to teach himself.

Hendrix 10 points. SEV 1point for makeing a very very good ( i admit) rendition to little wing instumental

Honestly mark knopfler may not play the guitar as badass as these fuckers but he is perfect at his style also jimmy page

>there are people in this thread right now who think it's possible to play the guitar better than john williams
fucking kill yourselves guys, every single note he plays is precise and immaculate, technically perfect, if a robot was programmed to play it would sound like john williams, and fuck all that fake "feel" and emotion, it doesn't exist, you can't emit emotion through strings, sure people can hear emotion though them, but you can't play with emotion, just good timing and accentuation, all of that falls within technique, and you can't get better than flawless
